Fertility: Let's Talk - Nino Parunashvili, CCPA
November 12, 2022 from 8:00am EDT to 8:50am EDT
Did you know that roughly 16% (or 1 in 6) couples in Canada experience infertility. Reality check: this number has doubled since the 1980s. Due to time sensitive nature of infertility, it is important to identify fertility plans and issues early to ensure proper counselling, treatment, referral, and guidance. Lets talk about possible causes (female and male factors) and get more depth on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, as one of the common causes of infertility. The aim of this lecture is to increase awareness of infertility, identifying family planning and the importance of timely referral for fertility treatment.
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
- Infertility awareness – identify and refer early!
- Provide an overview of possible causes: male and female
- Conduct a basic fertility history and workup
- PCOS: diagnosis and treatment: case discussion
